Research Recruitment

We are currently recruiting for three studies.

APHASIA REGISTRY & REPOSITORY

Do you have difficulty reading, writing, speaking, or understanding speech? Have you experienced a stroke? You may qualify for a free language evaluation provided by the Syracuse University Aphasia & Psycholinguistics Research Laboratory as part of a research study. The purpose of this study is to create a research registry that will help us learn more about language processing in people who experience stroke-related language difficulties. Participation in this study would require approximately 4 hours of your time. If you are interested in participating in this study, call 315-443-8688, or send an email to aphasia@syr.edu.

tDCS ATTENTION AND LANGUAGE STUDY

The Syracuse University Aphasia Lab is recruiting participants with and without stroke (age 18 years and up) for a research study investigating brain stimulation and its effects on attention and language learning. In this study a safe, non-invasive brain stimulation device will be used to deliver Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) during computer tasks and while learning a made-up language. The study will include a 10-minute phone screening, one language testing visit for persons with stroke (up to 1.5 hours), two sessions of attention training (1.5 hours each), and up to 10 sessions of language training (1 hour each). Eligible participants will be compensated up to $120 for completion of the study. Eligibility will be determined by a phone questionnaire. Aphasia Lab is located at 621 Skytop Road in Syracuse, NY. If you are interested in participating in this study, call 315-443-8688, or send an email to aphasia@syr.edu.

The Syracuse University Aphasia Lab is recruiting college students (age 18-25 years) for a research study investigating brain stimulation and its effects on sleep and cognitive functioning. In this study a safe, non-invasive brain stimulation device called Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), will be applied prior to a series of naps. The study will include one 45-minute screening visit and three 2-hour follow-up sessions. Eligible study participants will be compensated up to $50. Eligibility will be determined by a phone questionnaire and initial screening visit. If you are interested in participating in this study, call 315-443-8688, or send an email to aphasia@syr.edu. The Aphasia Lab is located at 621 Skytop Road in Syracuse, NY.

EEG ERROR PREDICTION

This Syracuse University Aphasia Lab is recruiting adults 40 years and older adults without a history of stroke and 18 years and older with a history of stroke for a research study that aims to develop a clinical tool that will use input from an EEG to predict naming errors. In this study, we will be using EEG to measure the electrical activity of the brain while participants name pictures from a computer screen. The study requires a 2-hour initial screening session and four, 1-hour follow up EEG testing sessions at the SU Aphasia Lab (located at 621 Skytop Road in Syracuse, NY). Eligible participants will be compensated up to $50. Eligibility will be determined in the initial screening visit. If you are interested in participating in this study, call 315-443-8688, or send an email to aphasia@syr.edu.
